It’s game week, folks, and that can mean just one thing — the return of the Touchdown Wire preview podcast with Doug Farrar and Mark Schofield! Every week, Doug and Mark will use tape study and advanced metrics to dive into the important matchups from every game (yes, even Jaguars-Texans), and here’s the 2021 regular-season premiere.

Among the topics discussed:

  • Which offensive and defensive trends we should be watching this season;

  • Why the Cowboys and Saints, respectively, should NEVER play single-high coverage against Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers;

  • The one personnel package that might save Dallas’ defense against the Bucs;

  • How Dean Pees will bring all kinds of things for Atlanta’s defense, and how Jalen Hurts can deal with it;

  • Why the Steelers’ defense should be the team’s real concern, especially against the Bills’ empty packages;

  • Why we’re definitely concerned about Ja’Marr Chase, even against the Vikings’ cornerback group;

  • Why Jimmy Garoppolo might have a shot at a good Sunday against the Lions;

  • Why Kliff Kingsbury had better shake his offense up against Tennessee’s improved pass defense;

  • Why the whole “Just give Carson Wentz a bunch of quick passes to get him comfortable” thing might not be the fix Frank Reich hopes it will be;

  • How Justin Herbert can solve Washington’s top-notch defense;

  • Why Zach Wilson vs. Phil Snow looks like a sneaky-good matchup;

  • How the Texans can make the most of Tyrod Taylor, and how the Jaguars had better make the most of Trevor Lawrence with scheme;

  • Why Jason Garrett needs to let Daniel Jones turn it loose;

  • And why we have no earthly idea what Matt Nagy is doing with his quarterbacks… especially against the pressure the Rams will bring.
